Big Lottery Fund assigns applications and awards by primary project location - where the project is delivered from, rather than beneficiary location or where their beneficiaries live. As such, it is likely that people living in (i) Gillingham and Rainham and (ii) Medway have also benefited from awards assigned to other locations over the past five financial years.
